When Children Have Heart Attacks
For years children have told me their hearts hurt. When I ask them where it hurts, they will lay their little hands over their hearts and say,
“It hurts right here.”
You might say these little ones are having heart attacks. We don’t usually think about little children having a heart attack.

Should divorced parents be encouraged to spend Thanksgiving together?
A lot of people encourage divorcing parents to come together for a holiday like Thanksgiving. People think it is in the best interest of the children. The premise is to create the image of one big happy family.

I woke up the other night in a panic. Every now and again I have a bad dream. It is always the same context, just differing situations. It consists of me attending an event, it can be a birthday party, a concert, a dinner, it really doesn’t matter where I’m at, it’s what happens when I am there that wakes me in a panic. I walk into a room and look around to find my husband, Jon (who passed away in 2012). I look everywhere but am unable to find him. This makes no sense because we were supposed to meet there. So I get on my phone and start calling him. I call and I call and it never goes through. The room starts to spin and the noise closes in on me and I begin to panic not knowing what happened to him. I then wake myself up screaming out for him in a panic because I can’t find him.

Where Do I Go For Help
I remember the 1st months after my separation. I was working full time, raising 2 kids and doing all I could to keep it together. I needed someone to talk to, someone who would understand. I had many around me who were friends and family of both of us but I either felt like I couldn’t share how I was truly feeling or that they would not be objective enough to really hear me. It was a very lonely time. And sometimes because I had shared, more drama would enter the picture causing more issues to have to deal with.

I have lived in Minnesota since I was 4. For the most part I’ve liked it, if I can overlook the freezing winters and mosquitoes in the summer. Every winter I wonder why I am still here.
